Having a couple of days off I thought I'd pop down to the big smoke and visit the Battle of Britain Heritage centre.

Not the biggest museum but very atmospheric, when you think who has walked through the rooms and grounds its makes it well worth a visit

For me being in the room where Dowding directed the whole affair made the events become very real

Anyway here's some pictures























Recreation of the plotting room

















Being solo I missed the chance to dress up and get my photo taken
